    Hello all,
    Is this true.. I can't believe that
    this company is discontinuing it's
    services. I had come to rely on this
    card in many ways.

    I have looked for similar cards but
    can't find any. Does anyone know of
    other cards like PocketCard?

    I haven't heard any such news about Pocketcard. Where did you hear/read this?

    For a similar deal try the M2 card. I think it's virtually identical to the Pocketcard.

    Go to their web site WWW.PocketCard.com
    and see the notice they have posted. Do
    you use the pocket card? If you do I'm
    surprised you haven't heard about this..

    I just checked their web site and have no idea what 'notice' you're referring to. I could not find any mention on their site.

    Am I missing something?

    Ooops, sorry, it's on their member log in
    page, not the opening page.

    Do you use the PocketCard?

    Pocket Card is DEAD

    This is at their site

    I never used the service but i know some people who did. This company is down the road from my house.

    Now, we have made a difficult decision about the future of our business. Sadly, we must tell you that PocketCard
    is discontinuing its Family and Business programs.

    This means that we will not be turning back on the ability for Sponsors to transfer funds to their Spender accounts.

    Your money is safe. Your Spenders can still use the funds in their accounts with their PocketCards until we
    wind down the service. All funds that were previously transferred to your spender accounts will be accessible via the
    spender cards through Wednesday, February 28, 2001. After February 28th, we will issue you a check for all unused funds.
    This check will be mailed to you at the sponsor address on file with PocketCard.

    You and your Spenders also will be able to use the PocketCard web site and automated phone system, and you will continue
    to receive normal e-mail alerts and statements, until February 28, 2001.

    After that, we will send a check to you for any unused funds in your Spender accounts. Please visit www.pocketcard.com
    to make sure we have your current address.

    We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for being part of the PocketCard circle of families and businesses. We
    have truly enjoyed providing this service to you.


    The PocketCard Team
